"Daddy" is a fictional character in the British Situation Comedy Keeping Up Appearances and he is Hyacinth, Rose, Daisy and Violet's father. Much is said and observed about Daddy but he is not often seen.
Daddy is mentioned in the very first episode (Daddy's Accident). He is often tangled up in matters that greatly embarrass Hyacinth but amuse Onslow, who refers to Daddy as a "dirty old man." Hyacinth will often try to cover up Daddy's incidents by calling it an act of courage or putting it to a matter of his declining health. Daddy's behaviors are probably because of his senility. He typically is silent, but he has a few speaking roles. In "A Picnic for Daddy" he is only seen up close for a few seconds, and seen distantly a bit as he drives Richard's car. While Hyacinth and Daisy prepare him for the picnic, the camera angles imply that he is in the room, but during that section of the episode, he isn't shown.
In Season 1, Episode 4 (The Charity Shop) Daddy has a female partner whom he offered marriage according to the woman.
